There are 7 base note names, A - B - C - D - E - F - G (white) and 5 black notes in each pattern (octave) as picture below. Each of these can also be called a plus (+) or minus (-). For example, the first black key on the left can be called "+C" or "- D"; Note "E" can be called "- F", etc. In short, plus (or sharp) note is the next note on the right (higher pitch, higher frequency). Minus (or flat) note is the next note on the left (lower pitch, lower frequency). These names are used over and over again and change tone in a mathematical relationship. Two notes next together creates one semitone (example: C and +C; or E and F; or B and C; or -B and B...). Two semitone next together creates one tone (example: C and D; F and G; -B and C; ...)
